Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur jaune et très légèrement voilée. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés, moyen de pain frais, très léger de fruits (agrumes) et de houblon herbeux. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux petites notes aqueuses. Léger goût fruité (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de pain frais et de grains de céréales fraîches puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume quelque peu asséchante de houblon herbeux aux faibles traces florales. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des traces fruitées (zeste d’agrumes). (24 mars 2012)

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2012
In short: An exemplary blond lager with nice herbal/flowery hops and a splendid freshness sensation. Superb session beer
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a persistent small white head
In long: Nose is typical clean lager with some fresh floral/herbal hops. Taste has this unwordable true lager quality, clean chewy cereals, nice herbal hops, some countryside flowers, some boiled eggs white (I often get that from this style), low sweetness sensation, perfect balance. Full but lean mouthfeel with well levelled smooth carbonation. There is a freshness sensation that is also hard to put into words. As usual for the style, not the most complex beer around but freshness sensation and its extremely high drinkability make for a great session beer. I had to order a second pint. I see mostly bad ratings for this beer, you guys are wrong, because of all the people on this site I am certainly the one who has the best taste in beer, who writes the best ratings and who is by far the most delusional.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
Golden colour. Aroma of light malts. Sweet palate, dough and with barely any hop. Not really bready enough.

robinvboyer (3113) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Solid pils malt aroma, lots of grains, and cereals, and a very pleasant grassy hop. Very clean and refreshing. Lightbitter finish, more great cereals and light grassy hops. Top knotch.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Clear gold. Aroma has slight but well integrated diacetyl, and creamed corn. Soft palate. Sweet, continuing the creamed corn theme. Not the greatest example but after all that its drinkable enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

En fût. Verre de 10 oz dégusté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales avec une pointe fruitée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #4150)

lefossoyeur (453) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
Crystal clear golden bronze topped by a white head that fades leaving a good lace. Fruity malt aromas with a touch of hay. Light to medium body, creamy palate, average carbonation, good malt backbone with "green" hops midpalate. Not the most complex of beer (but Helles should’nt be, no?) but well made with high drinkability.

rodenbach99 (3160) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Une pinte sur place. Bière blonde dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est léger, agréable, avec une touche de houblon et de malt pils allemand. La bouche est facile, agréable, un peu de houblon en fin de bouche. Une amertume surprenante pour ses 19 IBU. Une bière de soif, bien faite.
